1980 United States censusEdit

The US census pages for 1990, 2000, and 2010 all have a subheading on "Reapportionment" which very nicely gives the changes in Congressional seats as a result of the census. This is missing for 1980 (I have not checked earlier census entries) and that is a failing. Could someone knowledgeable please add this information (in the same format as for, e.g., 1990) for 1980 (and earlier if those are missing)? Jtelser (talk) 03:11, 27 December 2020 (UTC)

A cup of tea for you!Edit

Meissen-teacup pinkrose01.jpg Thanks for your amazing suggestions! I stay up late editing, and work really, really hard to do a good job on these, but unfortunately, thanks mostly to the stifling efforts of ONE editor. I will likely have to quit that project. I simply will be threatened with a block if I continue, so I will likely have to stop. People are very protective of the towns and cities in their watchlists... even if I am only trying to attain consensus. Happy to discuss further though tomorrow! Going to sleep for now.

I strongly encourage you to continue. I've been where you are and have been very frustrated by single editors who "defend their territory". Just move on and go do your work somewhere else. If adding the dates is what's causing frustration, just keep editing without adding the dates. Don't let one editor ruin something you are enjoying. I'll take a look at your work in the days to come and see if this editor is oversteping. If they threaten you with a block simply for Good Faith edits, then I will come to your defense. --Dkriegls (talk to me!) 08:34, 2 December 2021 (UTC)
Your words of encouragement have swayed me into action and I am back at it. This time I am still adding the dates (as that is my personal favorite thing to do, and I DO feel that it IS considered a value add by many, just not this one editor). Thanks for your feedback and support. It makes the encyclopedia a more enjoyable place to be and to learn about the world. Also, I can't fault this one editor all that much, they have made me a better editor by pushing me to ensure that I am only adding well sourced/cited birth dates etc. Th78blue (They/Them/Their • talk) 15:54, 7 December 2021 (UTC)
